Here's a sample response for those not subscribed to chromium-dev:

A couple things to note for background sake:
1) It is our goal that Chrome and Safari should not diverge in web platform
2) Maciej is a very influential member of the WebKit and web standards
Therefore, I think Maciej would need to be convinced before Chrome would
ship UMP.
I confess that I don't have a good enough understanding of UMP vs CORS yet
to comment intelligently on the subject.  I need to do some reading and
educate myself better.  Having read some of what has been linked from this
thread, I still feel that I am missing some background information.
